But Islam is not Â a race. Islam is a genocidal doctrine of perpetual warfare in the guise of religion. The truth will out!
“Sydney conference hears Australian Muslims experience higher rates of racism”
In whose service are the overpaid globull-worming, homo-marriage and Islampromoting wackjobs from the ABC? Â The last time I checked, exasperated Australian taxpayers were shelling out 1.2 billion dollars annually to be bombarded with leftist garbage and Mohammedan grievance theatre:Â The ABC still hasn’t said why their damage was worth it
Update: Malcolm Turnbull has no intentionÂ for nowÂ of cutting a dollar from the ABC while he’s Communications Minister:
To hell with muselmanic infil-traitors and their enablers, likeÂ Professor Kevin Dunn from the University of Western Sydney, who has a long history of aiding and abetting MohammedanismÂ downunder.
The ABC needs to be cut to shreds. The ABC needs to be totally dismantled and replaced with private operators. Australia doesn’t need any more taxpayer funded commie propaganda.
Enough is enough!
An international conference on what it means to be an Australian Muslim has heard that most Muslims experience much higher rates of racism than the average Australian.
The two day conference has been organised by Charles Sturt University’s Centre for Islamic studies and Civilisation, along with the Islamic Sciences and Research Academy Australia.
The Centre’s director, Mehmet Ozalp says the inaugural conference is needed to examine what it means to be an Australian Muslim in the 21st century.
He says there is a focus on young people, including the impact of the internet and radical forces.
“There is an identity crisis that always comes with being young but also being a young Muslim makes it even deeper and more profound”, he said.
“There are people pulling in different directions but what we found in our research is that by and large Muslims want to integrate into Australia.”
One of the speakers, Professor Kevin Dunn from the University of Western Sydney says while most Australian Muslims have the same issues as everyone else in Sydney about housing, jobs and education, there is one difference.
“In one important respect Muslims are extraordinary or the Muslim experience is extraordinary in Sydney and that is their rates of experience of racism,” he said.
“So for instance we know from the “challenging racism” national surveys that about 17 per cent of people will have experienced racism in the workplace, but for Muslims our surveys are showing that’s as high as 60 per cent.”
He says it is important Australia’s political, social and religious leaders acknowledge the damage such racism can do to social cohesion.
“It’s why it’s very important for our leaders, for our public documents and proclamations that this is a multicultural and multifaith nation.”
Sarah El-Assaad, 24, who is a student of Islamic Studies and NSW lawyer, says she never questioned her identity as an Australian until comments were made to her, especially when she decided to wear the Muslim headscarf or hijab.
She said some of the comments involved a client, as well as colleagues.
“I’ve had a few confrontational moments in my life where it has sort of shocked me to feel that I wasn’t a part of what I thought I was a part of,” she said.
Mr Ozalp says while there a small minority of Australian Muslims become radicalised because of overseas events and other issues, generally such events actually bring the broader Muslim community together and help them find their place in Australia.
“It pushes other Muslims to define who they are as Australian Muslims – it has ironically a galvanising effect,” he said.
Roy Morgan poll
Meanwhile, the anti-islamist group the Q Society has published the results of its commissioned survey done by Roy Morgan research.
The Q Society was responsible for bringing right wing anti-islamist Dutch MP Geert Wilders to Australia earlier this year.
Geert Wilders is a social democrat. He is a Dutch patriot who stands for the values of the enlightenment, for our liberal culture and civilisation, Â for equality of all peoples before the law, which means he opposes Â Islamofascism. For the last 9 years, for telling the truth about islam and sharia, Â he has to live under 24 hour police protection in his own country, because the soldiers of allah see it as a religious obligation to assassinate him. ABC retards who support this are insane.
The poll found 70 per cent of those questioned believe Australia is not a better place because of Islam.
The survey, completed in late October, found 50 per cent of those questioned also wanted full face coverings banned from public spaces.
A spokesman for the Q Society says around 600 people were questioned nationally in the poll.
The poll included questions asking participants’ opinion about statements such as: “Australia is becoming a better place as a result of islam” to which 70 per cent responded “no”.
Other questions included: “As you may be aware, some countries’ governments have implemented bans on wearing clothing in public that fully covers the face, like the islamic burqa. In your opinion, should Australia introduce similar laws?”
53 per cent responded “yes”.
